Transfer from Havana Airport Jose Marti to Playa Santa Lucia (Camaguey-Beaches )Playa Santa Lucia belongs to the province Camaguey, it is a Beaches
Playa Santa Lucia
Located nearly 112 km. northeast of the central province of Camagüey is one of the longest Cuban beaches with 20 km. These sandy beaches of perfectly transparent, warm waters are protected by the coral reef on the Atlantic, second in size only to the Australian one. This reef stretches west parallel to Sabinal, Guajaba, Romano and Cruz Keys, reaching Varadero. Exactly in front of Santa Lucía is the reef’s closest point to the main island, less than 200 meters away from the shore. That’s why it’s an excellent area for diving. More than 50 coral, 200 sponges and about 500 tropical fish species, besides 27 sunken ships can be seen at this unique, amazing submarine environment. Diving in Santa LucíaThe diving zone spreads for 5 km. and is limited by the Lavanderas Reef to the east and Playa Bonita to the west, comprising La Boca, a semi isolated peaceful spot, next to the access channel to Nuevitas Bay and very close to a picturesque fishermen’s town. That area has 37 diving spots, averaging between 5 and 40 meters of depth. The immersions include visits to where the sunken ships lay, inhabited by many kinds of fish and mollusks. Among the most attractive immersions are the ones at Cueva Honda, 32 km. deep. This is a breathtaking cave which shelters tarpons and big groupers. At a depth of 27 meters there are two sunken ships: Motera and Nuestra Señora Virgen de Altagracia. The first was a 19th century Spanish merchant shipwrecked in 1896 at the entrance of the Nuevitas Bay channel. Colourful coral fish and big snappers, groupers and shoals of jacks inhabit it. The second one, a steel tugboat, dating back to the early 20th century, in perfect condition, located next to a wall dropping straight into the abyss. Inside and around it rove numerous fish. View of Santa Lucía beachSanta Lucía can be reached by road from any place in the country, although most of the foreign visitors now arriving there make it by way of the Ignacio Agramonte International Airport at Camagüey. In a wholly preserved environment, with an average temperature of 25,6 °C, limpid waters and fine white sand, beaches such as Amigos del Mar, Residencial, Tararaco and La Boca are also found.

Playa Santa Lucia it is located in the province of Camaguey.
Camagüey is the easternmost, largest and flattest province in the center of Cuba. It has a few mountains and is flanked by the two biggest archipelagos in the country: Sabana-Camagüey (also known as the Jardines del Rey) to the north, and Jardines de la Reina to the south. Both of them still keep virgin forests where you can find peace. The weather doesn’t change excessively throughout the year, and the average annual temperature is 24.7 ºC. Historically, it has always been a city that has politically and economically gone against the tide in comparison with the rest of its neighboring cities. The fact comes from colonial times when inhabitants from Camagüey gave preference to cattle over the sugar industry, with the intention of getting rid of a system that only generated poverty. Nowadays, cattle continues as the basis of its economy.
Most tourists arrive to the Ignacio Agramonte International Airport, or by road if they come from other areas of the country. The main touristic attraction of the province of Camagüey is, without a doubt, Playa Santa Lucía Beach in Cayo Sabinal. The color of its waters and fine sands form an irresistible tropical attraction. The hotels of the area add some incentives to explore the beauty of the beach by offering several activities with which to enjoy your holidays.
But Camagüey is not just a beach. The most important city of the area, which shares its name with the province, gives us the chance of discovering Cuban history through its small and labyrinthine streets, which many times take us to beautiful hidden corners. It is also a place lovers of Catholic architecture enjoy visiting because of its large buildings.
Other interesting places you shouldn’t miss out on during your journey to Camagüey are: Florida and its traditions, Sierra del Chorrilla Mountains and its trails, the history of the first Cuban Constitution in Guáimaro, or the industry of Nuevitas.
Camagüey is the largest of the provinces of Cuba. Its capital is Camagüey. Other towns include Florida and Nuevitas. Camagüey is mostly low lying, with no major hills or mountain ranges passing through the province. Numerous large cays (including what used to be one of Fidel Castro's favourite fishing spots; the Archipiélago Jardines de la Reina) characterize the southern coasts, while the northern coast is lined by Jardines del Rey of the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago.
Sandy beaches are found on both coasts also, and despite a large potential for tourism, the province has seen little development in that area with the exception of Santa Lucía beach, on the province's North coast. The economy of the Camagüey province is primarily cattle and sugar (in the north and south) farming, and the province is known for its cowboy culture, with rodeos frequently held. Chickens and rice are also farmed, and a small citrus fruit industry exists. The capital city also has one of the few breweries on the island.
